- Hannibal (TV) (1)
Freddie confronts Will with what she knows, what she saw, before and after the bloodbath. Will can't forget, try as he might not to remember.
"He leaned against the countertop, maybe eighteen inches from the doctor. Will settled his elbows on the countertop. Lecter registered this insouciance with a scant raise of his eyebrow. “It’s getting late”, Will remarked, “Long drive back”.
Lecter turned off the faucet. He began drying his hands on a towel with more care than strictly necessary. Lecter took particular care over the center of his left hand- Will saw the faint surgical scar on the back of that hand, far older than the still-pink tracks on Lecter’s wrists. The left hand seemed larger than the right- fractionally larger, but unnaturally broad." ... “That’s true. But night is long in the winter- there is plenty of time yet,” Lecter replied, returning his eyes to the dishtowel. Lecter’s tone was conversational, but Will would have described the accent as thicker, more guttural than usual. “Time for what?” Will asked evenly.
Written for the following prompt: Charles knows everything about Erik, knows how obsessive and self-destructive he is, how Erik would do anything, give anything, in his quest for vengeance against Shaw. But he also knows that Erik loves him in ways that aren't exactly platonic.
I'd like to see a completely straight!Charles, out of pure love and care of Erik, initiate a romantic relationship with him. It can be because he wishes to give Erik something positive in his life or because he thinks it might help change Erik's mind about Shaw, the reason is up to author. Also, while Charles finds intimacy with Erik strange and awkward, he does enjoy the new, non-romantic layers that have developed in their relationship.
